Carson Knowles fought in the Vietnam War. When he returned, he didn't have anything left in his life. His wife left him and his son died. Without a job, Carson became inspired by the vigilante actions of Moon Knight. Calling himself the Black Spectre, Carson went a different route. Rather than fight crime, he decided to become a criminal himself.
